Tired of hosting the same ole BBQ for the Fourth? Then why not combine the holiday with a family trip up north to the Mountain View Grand in New Hampshire's White Mountains. The hotel is pulling out all the stops for its July 4th weekend celebration with fireworks, BBQs, bluegrass bands, and many activities for all ages to enjoy. Visiting the Grand Hotel is like stepping back in time, knowing that sometimes the most simple things -- like a pie eating contest and potato sack races -- make for the best memories. Your family will enjoy the 3rd Annual Children's parade, cardboard boat races, egg toss, Revolutionary War Scavenger Hunt and scotch and whiskey tasting for the adults. Rates start as low as $209 - call 866-484-3843 and book your stay today.
